“Linda has worked in various settings throughout her career as a physiotherapist including private clinics, sports practises, occupational rehabilitation and aged care organisations. In 2010, she decided to open her own clinic in Lanyon ACT where she supported the local community and worked with people of varying ages and degrees of injury. In 2017, she moved on from business ownership and solely specialised in the community aged care sector leaving the Southside Physio team look after her Lanyon clients. During this time, Linda developed a passion for home-based therapy, realising that often helping someone in their home allows the therapist to get a true understanding of the functional requirements as well as interactions in their life. Her treatment plans have become far more holistic and functionally based and positive outcomes are being achieved for her clients. During 2020, Linda developed her skills in telehealth as it was not always possible to safely attend a client’s home. She realised very quickly that this mode of therapy can be immensely powerful for patient recovery and hence she plans to continue to focus her time in delivering services in both the home based and telehealth areas.
Outside of work, Linda enjoys an active lifestyle in the outdoors. She loves nature and, in the winter, spends many weekends skiing. She loves performing arts and attending the theatre and loves watching her girls performing on stage. As a mum of two teenage girls, she spends many hours as the taxi driver supporting their extra curriculars but she really wouldn’t have it any other way as being their mum brings her the most joy in life.”
